It's Been a Year!

A year ago today...
I made our
move to Blogger official.
I had opened our account here long before that
but spent a year blogging
traveled a bit,
and finally landed here to plant roots.
That root planting was one year ago.

To celebrate our year here, we're having a little fun...

Since this day kinda snuck up on me
(I just discovered it today!),
I'm not quite sure, at this time,
what the item(s) will be that will be given away,
so I'll add that info in later. ;o)

To participate in our giveaway...

*Just leave a comment on this post. ;o)

**If you have a blog,

please feel free to share our event
(you can use the above graphic, if you'd like)
and we'll add your entry in twice. ;o)

Either way, I would be delighted to hear from those that visit!

The giveaway will end

Saturday, March 29 at midnight.
We'll announce the winner
(randomly selected by one of our children)

on Monday, March 31st.

I hope to hear from you!

Edited to add:

Below are the giveaway items:

Hardbound Thomas Kindkade "Sunrise" journal;
Psalm 9:10 bookmark;

Support Our Troops car magnet (we had to throw that in there!);
house cookie cutter (going along with our haven at home theme);
and a potholder of spring-like colors,
crocheted by our daughter, Ally. ;o)

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine..."
~ Proverbs 17:22

I will admit to this being my first comment, although i have been happily reading your posts for a few months now.
Aside from the contest entry, I would like to thank you.
I have considered myself a Christian all of my life, but only recently, thanks in part to you and your beautiful family, really begun to centralize this in my life.

So thanks for you updates, and for helping me to become a better person for Christ :-).

I will gladly send people your way, thus decreasing my chances at winning. However in the interest of promoting a good blog and remembering that the Bible says that the last shall be first :-)
Happy blogaversary. I just discovered that my one year is this month as well!

I'm glad you made the switch to Blogger as I often have a hard time getting HSB blogs to load.

Using your blogiversary as an opportunity to tell you that though I don't often comment, I do always read. :) I still think it so fun that after emailing through your Yahoo group (after my brand-new-mom breakdown, lol!) a few years ago, we ended up in the same "blog circles" quite by accident. I do think of you often and think that if you could make it through these deployments with four children, I can make it with two. ;) Happy Blogiversary!

One year is a great milestone! Congrats! I will gladly put a link on my blog.

Jennifer said...

Hi. I dont think i have commented much, if at all here. I love stopping by and reading though- you live in my "old" neck of the woods.... we are stationed out in SoCal and I found you through Ashleigh's site. We also homeschool, my oldest is in 7th grade, youngest is 18 months.
Congrats on your 1yr of blogging here!!!! I live vicariously through others blogs LOL since I do not have one!

Pat said...

Cat said...

Happy Blogiversary!

I haven't commented much and not in quite a while (though we e-mailed a couple of times), but still pop in to read here and there. I'm sure it is wonderful having your husband home, at long last! We're just in the second week of our current 15 month deployment...baby #4 arrived safely in January and is being thoroughly enjoyed by all his big sisters and mommy.

Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary.
I have been reading your blog and Ally's for about 6 months now, and have been greatly encouraged by both of them.
I'm a married Christian mother of 2 girls (aged 6 and 4) from Australia.I turned 40 last December and really enjoy Titus 2 type blogs. I learn so much from those further along the parenting journey than myself. We've recently pulled our eldest daughter out of Christian school and are trialling Homeschooling and loving it.
God bless you

I no longer remember how I ever found your blog, but I am so glad I did. Though I do not often get to comment, I pray for your family and I am always so uplifted and encouraged when I come here and read. Though I know that no one is perfect and we all fall short, know that you are such a Godly example of mother and wife and I appreciate what you do through your blog.


Elaine said...

I haven't been to your blog in such a long time. It's nice to be back. Just wanted to wish you a Happy Blogiversary. Your blog is a beacon of light. Nice to see you and the family getting some time with your dh, too. March 17th was mine blogversary...blogiversary...blogoversary (however you spell it - it is a made up word, right??? lol). I decided to host a Friendship Party (4 part - week long series). Would love for you to stop by "when you can". FYI, #3 will begin Friday midnight. Have a BLESSED weekend! Leinani

Congratulations on one year at blogger.

I too, have moved around some over my blogging journey. Each site seems to have its pro's and its con's. I'm glad you have found a "home" that you like using.

Have a great weekend.

Hi, I learned about your blog site
and giveaway through a friend who
has you listed on her page. I would love to be entered in your giveaway and I just wanted to say
I have been impressed and greatly
encouraged just reading some of your postings. I haven't taken
the time to read them all but I
admire what you are doing by
teaching your childen the lessons
of the Bible and getting them
to be involved the way you do.
I enjoy all the pictures you've
posted that has them demonstrating
to the world how girls should
dress appropriatly. Well I don't
guess you wanted me to write a
chapter out of a book or anything
but I just wanted to say thanks
for all you are doing to be a
great witness for our Lord. I
don't have a blog page but my
email address is jmbrk@northstate.net so you can
contact me if I win or want to
leave me any other comment. Jewel
